Work comes from his recent exhibitio n and publication\, "Shadows of Minidoka\," his fourth major series on his experience as a child and reflection back as an adult on his time at Mini doka.\n\nOn display through October 7\, 2012\, the paintings will also be for sale with a portion of the proceeds generously donated to Oregon Nikke i Endowment from the artist.\n\n"It is the culmination of years of perusin g images culled from books\, magazines\, government publications\, persona l recollections and the internet. The result of this search has been the v isual distillation of this experience to tar papered barracks\, barbed wir e\, and desolate landscapes\, inhabited by muted occupants as they stand i n line waiting\, cleaning\, eating\, contemplating and quietly conversing\ ," states Mr. Shimomura. At the core\, this work shows lives interrupted\, stalled and desolate yet still moving forward.\n\nPrograms and events thr oughout the exhibit will include summer First Thursdays in June\, July and August\, a lecture and visit by the artist in July along with youth activ ities throughout the summer.
